this is gluten free glamorous

A couple of weeks ago I saw a recipe on Glamour's health & fitness blog for guilt-free chocolate-chip muffins. Or as Mariska Hargitay likes to call them, "Joyful Heart Fudge Chip Muffins"--named after her Joyful Heart Foundation which supports survivors of sexual assault. *Please note that the Glamour recipe lists oat flour as one of the ingredients. The only oats that are certain to be free of contamination from gluten grains are grown in dedicated fields. Read more here about gluten contamination of commercial oats in the U.S.
So back to the glamour thing. Apparently Gwyneth Paltrow did a seven day gluten free diet cleanse which she shared in her GOOP newsletter. And let's not forget those loyal fans of BabyCakes.

Do you think there IS a Hollywood obsession with the gluten free diet?

Gluten free or not, those muffins look AMAZING! I adore Mariska Hargitay--she seems like such a genuine person. (Though I must admit to being a little annoyed with Gwyneth lately...GOOP is kind of lame). I'll take a lunch date with Mariska any day!

Ooooh but that does look good.

And hollywood starlet or not (or not yet?) I absolutely adore babycakes. Probably on my top 10 things I miss about living in new york...

Hey, hollywood might be getting gluten-free obessesive, but a little positive GF press never hurt anyone :)

I agree - a little GF press is great! If they can make it more trendy then hopefully it will be easier for us to find GF products!

Actually, more than GF products - GF meal options in restaurants or by caterers would be wonderful.
